Today we plant. It is a perfect day to think of seeds - sunny, warm and full of apple blossom petals blown willy-nilly by the wind. Our modest crop will include parsley, mint, and whatever else the kids decide to fill the last pot with. It's a potted garden for us this year - can't be too ambitious with a baby coming next month.
But there's always help needed with grandma's ample beds. Nothing can beat the smell of fresh tilled earth. (Unless it's fresh bread, but I digress...) I can only imagine how farmers felt as they worked the ground in the spring. What a feeling.
Notwithstanding the beautiful weather, I triumphantly proclaim that I have not neglected my crocheting! Every day I make sure to finish at least one row in a baby blanket project I started during the winter. I doubt it'll be done before baby comes, but at least it's not sitting neglected in a corner.
I shall leave you with a glimpse or two of those little critters that I finished for a Pascha gift but never had a chance to showcase. They about the size of my palm and terribly cute. I'll have to refine the pattern for the head to include a little snout next time. :o) I'm sort of addicted to mini crocheted animals now. (Maybe because they take less time to finish...?)
